Love 4 Love Season of LOVE

December 6 to December 20, 2020

What is Love 4 Love Season of LOVE?

Once per year, our ministry receives a special "Love 4 Love" offering where we give a one-time sacrificial gift over and above our tithes to support what we believe God wants to do within our community.

It allows us to move well beyond what our budgets allow and forcefully advance the Kingdom of God. When you give as a part of Love 4 Love, you are directly responsible for accelerating the pace at which our church is able to move forward in three areas: Kids & Youth; Our Community; and the World.

"Love 4 Love" funds are used for initiatives to bring hope and help to our home, our backyard and the world. As we look towards this miracle offering, we ask each member and friends of our church family to give love in the form of an end of the year financial offering.

How Can I Get Involved?


Prayerfully consider the opportunity to give in a new, above-and-beyond way. Our hope that people will continue to realize that we all have a part to play in this! Our collective sacrifice matters in ways we can never realize. What we sow today will reap a harvest for generations to come.


This is such power in setting a goal and then being able to see it fulfilled. While we won't collect pledge cards, we ask that you make a personal commitment on what you will give to "Love 4 Love" over the days.


True generosity and stewardship is often NOT spontaneous. It's planned, it's calculated, it's budgeted, and its INTENTIONAL. Planning to be generous and to lead the way financially is a faith step, without a doubt! And our prayer is that God will continue to encourage you on this journey every step of the way.

Everyone has an opportunity to give towards "Love 4 Love" beginning December 6th and December 20th.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7NIV
